• Crafts in the Pen

    A weekend to remember. Things got compressed and time became tight on Friday..... loaded up in the the rain into the motor home and headed for Skipton. My wife was joining later. Traffic was terrible and after some delays I arrived at the Auction Mart. Battery in the van causing concern and was only just starting up.

    Set up went ok and just as it was going dark I headed for the campsite. After a lot of driving around I found it and with the help of a decent mobile signal I guided my wife to the site. A very windy night followed with little sleep. Well it was forcast..... snow too. The following day, I had forgot to check out the showers, so we had no tokens and it was too early to knock anybody up. A very cold but busy day at the fair although there were not too many people around. It was the first time that this event had been put on. Lovely meal later at a 'French Bistro'in Skipton and early night to catch up on sleep.

    Sunday much calmer and also managed a shower. The van wouldn't start so had to be towed to get it going. Massive thanks to people at Lower Heights Farm for the help. Quiet day at the fair and managed to get back to Southport without further problems.

    Now ordered a battery charger and will also fit a new battery in the van. I have managed to polish out the scratch, from a bush in a narrow lane, in some brand new paintwork and preped the van for winter storage.

    Just found out that Birkdake Village Fair has been cancelled and I have heard that this could be due to problems with insurance. It is so expensive when people will make claims so readily.

    Just got St Goerges Hall to do now on the Sunday, two new commissions to persue and hopefully some follow ups from Skipton eventually. The garden sculptures were creating a lot of interest.
